DIY Comm Badges by Where’s My Dream Life
I love the idea of repurposing things you already have at home. Everyone has stacks of business cards lying around—who knew they’d make perfect Star Trek comm badges? A Sharpie and some scissors and you’re well on your way to creating a whole fleet of paper communicators.
Vulcan Phone Case by The Cheese Thief
People will definitely do a double take when they see you talking on the phone and catch a glance at your Vulcan ears. This would be a great DIY right before a convention. It’s casual cosplay, emphasis on the casual! All you need is a clear phone case and a printout of your favorite logical Vulcan.
Star Trek Welcome Mat by Our Nerd Home
Welcome all beings into your home with a DIY Star Trek welcome mat. Change an affordable mat into a glorious ode to the final frontier with just a template and some spray paint. Be a bastion of protection for any wayward Red Shirts that wind up on your doorstep.
Star Trek Nails by More Nail Polish
I am all about themed nail art and these lovely tips are made to reflect the crew of Star Trek the Next Generation. Beautifully done, the colors are dead on and require a steady hand. Hold on to something!
Star Trek Dress by Reanna Lily Designs
Using a regular McCall’s dress pattern this outfit is easily turned into a Star Trek uniform that’s a wonderful modern take on a classic. With just a little bit of color blocking you can achieve an everyday cosplay look that’s smart and fashionable.
